Hinkle-Bred Current Earns Third Win of Year at Ellis
RSS Feeds Saturday, July 16, 2022

In the midst of one of the best seasons of his career, Hinkle Farms-bred Current secured a third 2022 win at Ellis Park in an Allowance Optional Claimer.

Coming into the race off of a third and fourth in two stakes before the race, Current raced five lengths off the leader early on in the 1 1/8 mile turf race before steadily closing the gap as they raced around the track. With just over half a mile left to go, Current moved to the outside of the two runners in front of him and prepared to join the fight.

That fight came as the field crossed into the final quarter and Current entered a duel for the lead. That duel lasted all the way to the line with Current getting his head in front just in time with two horses close behind.

The earner of over $500,000 has finished in the top three in six of seven starts this year with stakes placings in the G3 San Luis Rey and Isaac Murphy Marathon Overnight Stakes and wins in three of his 2022 runs so far.
